Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Student feedback indicated that there wasn’t enough time to prepare for early residential schools which had an intensive 3 days learning experience for students. Student Feedback Course Coordinators recommend residential schools not be offered any earlier than the end of week 2 of term to enable students time to do the required preparation.
Student feedback was that Assessment 2 was not clear enough for many students. Student Feedback Assessment 2 will be modified in line with the other clinical course.
Student feedback suggested there was not enough time to complete some activities during the on-campus learning sessions. Student Feedback Reflection by Course Coordinators On-campus learning activities will be reviewed and timing adjusted. There appears to be some overlap from Clinical Nursing Practice 1 and Clinical Nursing Practice 3 and these overlaps will be addressed to increase time available for new skills.
Student feedback was that some teaching staff needed to be better prepared to deliver course content. Student Feedback Some teaching staff were not allocated to the course until after the start of term. It would be beneficial to student learning for all teaching staff to be allocated to the course and available to engage with the course at least 2 weeks prior to the start of term.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Apply the principles from the nursing process to deliver evidenced based, person centred nursing care to individuals and families experiencing acute alterations in health
  2. Use the principles of cultural sensitivity to communicate and collaborate effectively with individuals, families and other members of the multidisciplinary care team to facilitate positive health outcomes
  3. Provide safe and effective person centred nursing care to individuals undergoing diagnostic and therapeutic interventions/procedures related to a range of acute alterations in health
  4. Function within legal and ethical frameworks and scope of practice of a nursing student in accordance with Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) registered nurse standards for practice in the acute care setting.

The Learning outcomes are linked to the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) Standards for registered nurses and the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) registered nurse standards for practice.
